series stock photo

This session is part of the 2-part panel series, Supporting the Mental Health of Refugee and Asylee Communities, with which we aim to raise awareness about relevant mental health needs of asylum seekers and refugee populations by highlighting their voices and stories; share best practices and strategies with providers and organizations using contextual and system-level perspectives; and differentiate between a cultural knowledge-base and culturally responsive approaches.

In this second session in the series, we hear from a systems & organizations panel led by subject matter experts (SMEs) working in/with the systems that attend to refugee and asylee communities. The learning objectives for this session are below:

  • Understand the similarities and differences between refugee and asylee populations
  • Identify the impact of systems and legal processes on mental health as people experience the migration process.
  • Increase capacity for and access to culturally responsive, trauma-informed services and supports.
